Please make a note now of Ash Wednesday, March 1st, Mass will be offered at 0830 and ashing at Churchill Square 2-3pm as is our custom. A great opportunity to explain to people “the reason for the season” and share the Gospel of Redemption. This year and to remind ourselves and others that part of the traditional observance of Lent includes acts of mercy and almsgiving, we will combine our witness with a charity collection for the homeless, specifically for “The Hub” we partner with the Salvation Army. We will position ourselves in the usual place outside the Prince of Wales pub on the western corner of Churchill Square… remember to wrap up warm!
On Wednesdays thereafter in Lent, there will be a Holy Hour open to our ecumenical friends in Churches Together, a meditative service from 5-6pm in the Prayer Room at Brighton Congress Hall. This will be a reflective service by candlelight affording the opportunity to “sit and be still” in the presence of The Lord.
“Caritas” the ecumenical discussion group will be held from 7.30pm, same day and venue. An opportunity once again to meet other Christians and share and discuss thoughts and life stories around the study of Biblical themes concerning discipleship.
Please feel free to invite anyone you know may be interested in either or both of these events and don’t forget to put them in your diary! Due to Fr Jerome’s planned absence there will likely be no meetings on Wednesdays the 8th and 15th of March.
